** Attachment added: "partman log file from the crash"
   https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/891711/+attachment/2599839/+files/partman

** Description changed:

  If one has a running Ubuntu 11.10 system and then boots an Ubuntu 11.04
  CD and chooses to install Ubuntu you are presented with an option to
  "Upgrade from 11.10 to 11.04".  Choosing this option results in a crash.
+ 
+ Presumably the same thing would happen if you were to install 12.04 and
+ then boot an 11.10 CD.
  
  TEST CASE
  1) Install Ubuntu 11.10
  2) Try to reinstall Ubuntu 11.04 (because you are dissatisfied with the new release for some reason)
  3) At the allocate drive space screen choose "Upgrade 11.10 to 11.04" (because you don't want to lose your data)
  4) During the copying files phase observe a crash
